Sometime in the last months some code has been introduced  to mojosetup
wich encloses the Exec statment in the menu / Desktop Entry files in
double quotes. This obviously is to handle spaces in paths, but it also
has the effect that the Exec statement no longer handles arguments to
the executables and when trying to add an argument the program startup
fails. We are looking into this, but if anybody can give us some hints
on where to look we'd be grateful!

This happens in platform_unix.c around xdgDesktopMenuItem() and
